I’m starting to notice a pattern to my blog posts. It seems I am finding
my weekly moodboard inspirations from the things happening that week in my life (see
previous posts inspired by Vivid
etc). Nothing ground breaking about this discovery but stay with me.
This week I’m linking together the queen and my upcoming bathroom
renovation. Can’t you see the connection? Mother of Pearl – you’ve got it!!
The long weekend dedicated to the queen’s birthday was greatly
appreciated (thank you your majesty) and we all know the queen is the true
mother of pearl style icon. She can work a pearl statement necklace like nobody’s
Over the queen’s bday long weekend I spent a lot of time researching
and planning our bathroom reno. Lots of pinterest, real living mags and Houzz
images (the Houzz app is awesome). While flicking through 17,846 bathroom
images I decided that a) I would like a little niche in my new shower for the shampoo
and conditioner and b) I rather like the idea of mother of pearl mosaic tiles.
Here’s a few delightful ideas that have got me quite excited for this project.
So to link this all together I thought I’d share some pearl styling
ideas. There’s been much talk and admiration of the lovely winter luxe theme in
the blogosphere the past few weeks. I think these pearly additions would make
the ideal finishing touch to the fluffy jumpers, faux furs and lovely leathers.
Faux or real, pink or black, pearls can work with almost anything.
Final pearl thought of the day: About eight years ago, I bought some
oysters from our local fish shop and that night my husband almost broke his
tooth on the tiniest, whitest, most perfectly round pearl!!! It’s still sitting
in my jewellery box waiting to be made into a beautiful ring or perhaps a
pendant...must get onto that....
Do you like to wear pearls? Do you have any bathroom renovation pearls of wisdom to share with me?
